Comments:The national do not call list was created for a reason; People DON'T want to be bothered over the phone by companies trying to sell them something, but these companies just don't get it. I think the laws about telemarketing are backwards. I think if a consumer WANTS to receive such calls, he or she should pay for that service. But, if he or she DOESN'T WANT such calls, they should be entitled to their right to privacy without an additional charge. Same rule could apply for phone book listings; If I WANT my name in the book, I'll pay for it, but if I DON'T WANT my number listed, why should I have to pay for them NOT to publish my information?
